SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The social media specialists at Reputation Maxx know that many people like to express the way that they feel about certain things and situations on social media. After all, platforms like Twitter were created to give people a way to express their opinions and connect with others across the globe. However, this is something that many people, especially celebrities, tend to abuse, posting tweets that go viral in seconds that can never be taken off of the Internet completely.

Just in the past week, several trending stories have been centered on prominent public figures and their misuse of Twitter. Ann Coulter's hack of the #BringOurGirlsBack hashtag caused a barrage of pictures featuring Coulter with different Photoshopped pictures of the piece of paper that she was holding up. New hash tags ranged from "#BringBackMySoul" to "Please Pay Attention To Me" and more.

The social reputation management experts at JW Maxx Solutions also cite an instance earlier in the week when Ed Schultz, host of the "Ed Show" on MSNBC tweeted out an ill-informed and derogatory comment about the Holocaust and the intentions of Hitler.

In the end, both of these celebrities and countless more have made Twitter blunders recently. What people still do not seem to understand is that even if something is deleted, it is most likely going to be on Twitter forever, kept there through retweets and uploaded screenshots. No matter what a celebrity or average person posts on any social media account, they should always think twice about whether, in the future, it would be something that they would want to take down. If it is, it is better not to post the message at all.

Another blunder that Reputation Maxx sees that often causes headaches for celebrities is attacks that they make on other people, or responding directly to something that someone else has said about them in an inappropriate manner. In order to avoid these situations, Twitter users should keep several rules in mind: never Tweet while upset, intoxicated or extremely tired. Avoiding these situations is the best way to avoid posting something that they'll regret the next day.
